extended depth of focus IOLs

Study finds advantages using trifocal IOL to correct presbyopiaA 4-year study following trifocal IOL implantation (AT LISA tri 839MP, Carl Zeiss Meditec) found that the lens provided good distance, near, and intermediate visual acuity. The lens also improved patient quality of vision with better diffraction and less reduction in contrast sensitivity.
Early surgical intervention with stent advantageous for certain glaucomasIt is well known that with most disease, the earlier it is detected, the better the outcome prognosis. Along with early detection comes the need for early treatment. Traditionally, options for glaucoma have been limited. Medications can be effective when used properly, though patients are notorious for compliance issues.
12-month results with small-aperture IOL providing patients with an extended range of visionThe IC-8 IOL (AcuFocus) is one of the new class of extended-depth-of-focus (EDOF) IOLs that is definitively altering the landscape of cataract surgery in Europe and around the world. Whereas monofocal and multifocal lenses have one or two distinct focal points, an EDOF-IOL creates one elongated focal point, though each lens does so in a different way.
Extended-depth-of-focus IOLs expand surgical optionsSurgeons share their lessons learned about new lens technologies for refractive cataract surgery, such as extended-depth-of-focus IOLs.
